Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 21, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta tt-THt LBTHiRIDQE November Mobilization strains Israel's economy CkriitlM Science Mwttor Israel Israel's severely battered by the latest is being further strained by con- tinued mobilization. American arms aid adding up to plus possible U.S. economic and contributions from the inter- national Jewish community help bail Israel out. But these are not enough. The Israeli already one of the most highly taxed in the will have to dip deeper into his pocket as taxes and prices are raised. The major current drain 'on the economy comes from con- tinued mobilization. A quar- ter of Israel's labor which numbers over one million has been on ac- tive military service since the outbreak of the war and will probably continue there for several months more. These citizens in uniform are mainly the younger part of the labor force. In addition to there is the regular Army which consists of all able-bodied men of the ages of 18 to 21 and most women aged 18 to 20. It can thus be easily under- stood that the gross product which was expected to total 40 billion Israel pounds is now expected to total only 36 billion pounds. Calculated for the last quarter of the year this would mean a shortfall of 40 per cent. this is not the worst economic effect of the war. The military equipment which was destroyed in the fighting was according to preliminary billion how much their replacement new and higher prices will cost is not yet clear. The soldiers in the regular Army receive only low pay. But the reservists are paid from public funds their average' income of the last three months prior to call-up. The total pay of the reservists is estimated at over 300 million pounds a that is to say almost 1 billion pounds by the end of the year. Despite manpower strains the supply of the civil popula- tion with everyday com- modities is continuing without any major shortages. Where there were difficulties.they were due rather to shortage of means of transport. Most trucks and a large number of private cars have been mobilized by the Army. Almost the entire fleets of the professional road-haulage firms have been together with their by the national emergency supp- ly committee and are now be- ing centrally operated.
